Tehran, Dec 30, IRNA
Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday that what is going in Gaza is a blatant example of genocide.
"What is happening in Gaza now is plain genocide. Though the Qods occupying regime committed similar crimes against the Palestinian and Lebanese Muslim nations in the past, its latest actions are unprecedented," Larijani told his Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Ziari over phone on Tuesday.
He said that no other label but 'crimes against humanity' can be attributed to the Zionist regime's atrocities.
He noted that comprehensive and strong decision needs to be made by Arab and non-Arab Muslim states in the face of the brutal actions of the Zionist regime in Gaza.
He added that the Iranian Majlis is ready to take any necessary measure in that connection.
Ziari, for his part, voiced strong concern about ongoing conditions in Gaza and said, "The Algerian nation, like the Iranian nation, has been a witness to the Qods occupying regime's tyranny against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the merciless killing of women and children and other innocent civilian population." He said that the Algerian national parliament realizes the need for serious and immediate actions to halt the Zionist regime's crimes against the Gazan people and that Algeria is ready to act in line with this.
